Taiwanese magician Eric Chien lives in Houston. 2018's FISM Close Up Grand Prix winner. Eric won Asia's Got Talent Season 3 on April 11, 2019. First winner from outside Southeast Asia and from a country without its own Got Talent franchise.
Eric moved to the U.S. when he was 4 years old from Taiwan. School's only Asian. He was bullied at school and transferred four to five times. He began doing magic at 16 and decided to be a magician. He gets by with magic. He'd rather design his own trick than copy others.
After he shared a video of his magic routine online, a magician asked him to create props and materials for magicians. The longer he was backstage, the more he wanted to perform. He started making props in 2016. He started playing for large crowds in October 2018, therefore he's still anxious. 2015 saw his return to Taiwan for military duty. One year in the army. He couldn't accomplish anything besides military duty, including magic. After coming out, he had to regain his identity.
Eric is a friend of Will Tsai (Season 12 participant) and Shin Lim (Season 13 and The Champions Winner). He had also met or performed alongside Stevie Starr (Season 10 Finalist, The Champions contestant), Steven Brundage (Season 11 Semifinalist), Eric Jones (Season 12 Semifinalist), The Sacred Riana (Season 13 Quarterfinalist), Yu Hojin (Season 17 Finalist), and others..

It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Eric Chien booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired.
